Traveling is delightful in numerous ways. It binds us with a feel of desire to travel and has us craving for more destinations to holiday, cultures to know-how, foodstuff to eat, and individuals to meet. Hence, traveling teaches us what no one else can teach us with practical sessions. You can travel with family and friends but being a solo traveler is far more adventurous and learning experience. You have just yourself to do plan, execute and end. Everything is solely your responsibility and choice. Look around, you may find a solo traveler around you, who is self-dependent, knowledgeable, extrovert and enthusiastic. Have a conversation with him/her and if you cannot find one, visit the Solo Travellers Meetup in Ahmedabad. Here is the brief about it:
